My wild uneducated guess is that it's due to a nan-like value being in
the globals, and comparing unequal to itself:

>>> d = {1: float('nan')}
>>> d
{1: nan}
>>> d == d
False
>>> import decimal
>>> nan = decimal.Decimal('nan')
>>> d = {1: nan}
>>> d == d
False
msg70391 - (view) Author: Amaury Forgeot d'Arc (amaury.forgeotdarc) * (Python committer) Date: 2008-07-29 13:30
Bingo! doctest sets the __builtins__._ variable,
and the last doctest in decimal.py (in lexicographic order) is
Decimal.__round__, which ends with
        >>> round(Decimal('sNaN123'), 0)
        Decimal('NaN123')
This is the value you see in Benjamin's output.

Here is a trivial patch:

Shouldn't this be fixed in test_decimal so it cleans properly after it's self?
msg70393 - (view) Author: Antoine Pitrou (pitrou) * (Python committer) Date: 2008-07-29 13:45
I think the cleanup should either be in regrtest.py as Amaury proposes,
or in doctest itself. There's nothing wrong in decimal and its test suite.
msg70394 - (view) Author: Amaury Forgeot d'Arc (amaury.forgeotdarc) * (Python committer) Date: 2008-07-29 13:45
I was leaning towards the "doctest should not pollute the __builtins__
module" side. 
test_decimal might not be the only test that leaks one object outside
the module.
msg70395 - (view) Author: Benjamin Peterson (benjamin.peterson) * (Python committer) Date: 2008-07-29 13:47
I vote for fixing doctest then!

Here is another patch that modifies doctest itself.
Note that the _ is cleared only if "clear_globs" is True, which makes
sense IMO.

__builtins__ is a dict here, though.

You know what? It's a mess.
- from the __main__ module, __builtins__ is a module.
- in all other modules, __builtins__ is a dict.

The fix is correct for most modules:
    ./python Lib\test\test_decimal.py
but fails for
    ./python Lib\doctest.py

(why is it so? :-O)

Anyway:

    import builtins as b
    b._ = None

Ok, I've found it:

« But why is __builtins__ a module in __main__ and a dict elsewhere?
Because in *interactive* mode, printing vars() would include
__builtins__, which would be rather large. Code that incorrectly
assumes it's always one or the other is incorrect and has always been
incorrect; the wart was present when this feature first appeared.
Since this has never been documented AFAIK, it's probably just been
(incorrectly) reverse-engineered and copied around. »

It is actually documented, at the bottom of
http://docs.python.org/dev/library/__builtin__.html

"import builtin" is the correct thing to do.
